You know that one dude Samuel "Joe the Plumber" Wurzelbacher (pictured) everyone keeps talking about on TV? He may or may not already be a played-out Halloween costume, but he sure is famous. So famous, in fact, that he’s just retained the services of a Nashville-based PR firm, which sent me a press release last night. Said publicity firm has also been quoted as saying that "Joe" is considering launching a country music career. Yep, that’s right — "Joe the Plumber" is on the cusp of pulling a Joaquin the Actor. I, Simon the Blogger, am going to refrain from making a hasty judgment on this important matter (as well as from making any further lame "______ the ______er" jokes). So you tell me. Good idea? Bad idea? And wouldn’t it make more sense for a plumber to play some good old-fashioned musical pipes than to try and become a country singer?
